The beach is so popular that parking is challenging and the beach feels crowded. The park has been recently renovated and the grounds are nicely kept. Nice shallow entry into the lake. Rental boats are available.

Apart from a lovely lake view, we did not find much else to see. This maybe because it was midwinter, but the day was warm, and there was not much open.

Although almost everywhere there are signs restricting beach access to pets, we saw dogs everywhere! Including our own! Given the holiday weekend, maybe they weren’t enforcing that rule. There are some dog friendly beaches off of Lakeshore Blvd in Incline.

This was a beautiful area one of many must stops around the lake. You get a different feel here with the sandy shore line & waves it feels exactly like a beach.

Beautiful area to watch the sunset. Some areas have parks for small children with play sets. Most areas have a small pay for parking.

Continue to love Kings beach for family fun. We have enjoyed swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking, "picnic"ing and simply reading in the sun.

Kids loved playing in the sand. The beach was narrow and crowded, but we didn't mind that too much. Water was of course great,. . but we did see some trash strewn around :(

Unlike the beaches along the Pacific coastline from Southern California to Washington State where the general public has a right to full access of it, most of Lake Tahoe's beaches and shoreline are private and the public cannot legally access it; that is why you...More

Bike trails are everywhere. Lots of ski slopes turn into mountain bike trails in the summer with the ski lifts active. Northstar resort does this.
